On September 1 1 . 2001 . while we sat quietly in our classrooms, absorbed by the intricate details of our 
chosen professions, panic was tilling the streets of New York City. The twin 1 10-story buildings, 
where tens of thousands of people worked, collapsed after being struck by jetliners. Thick smoke and 
ash from the towers' collapse brought an artificial darkness to a city that never sleeps. And while many 
watched the TV images of the twin towers, terror struck again at the Pentagon as another jetliner 
crashed into the building. Still reeling from the shock of the day's events, another plane came crashing 
to the ground in Pennsylvania. 

Strength, courage, and confidence unimaginable in the face of such adversity swept across the country 
as we came together with a fierce conviction and commitment to lift our nation upward and onward. 
Humanity prevailed as selfless acts of benevolence became the rule, rather than the exception. 

We will always solemnly remember the tragedy of September 11, 2001- the horror, the anguish, the 
fear, the anger, and the sorrow. But we must also try to hold onto the best parts of the human spirit 
that rose above the destruction of that day, because the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen 
or touched, but are felt with the heart and soul. 

Virginia Commonwealth University 


Dedicated to the heroes and vicitms 
of the September 11, 2001 tragedy 

Dear students: 

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to this edition of X-Ray . Virginia Commonwealth 
University is proud of the more than 4,000 students and residents who are studying on the Medical 
College of Virginia Campus to go on to practice dentistry, medicine, nursing, and pharmacy and in 
the allied health professions. Our schools and the VCU Health System make us one of the most 
comprehensive academic health centers in the nation. 

The array of nationally and internationally recognized faculty working on new discoveries and their 
appreciations in the medical and health sciences is one of the tremendous benefits of your education 
here. From health administration to physical therapy, your faculty are attracting national recogni- 
tion for excellence in professional, graduate education and in life sciences research. They are 
involved in all aspects of your education— in the classroom, in the laboratory, and with patients.

As you read this issue of the X-Ray you will be impressed by the tremendous accom- 
plishments of the School of Allied Health Profession's smdents, faculty, staff, and alumni. 

The shifting of demographic macroeconomic forces, volitility in the health care industry, 
and rapidly emerging technologies have all significantly impacted our school. As a consequence, 
we have developed state-of-the-art programs, which have enhanced our capacity for even greater 
achievement and quality improvement. By many objective measures, our school is one of the 
leading schools of allied health in the country. But to declare victory or to become too compla- 
cent would harm many of the accomplishments this school has made. Hence, we will continue our 
bold new initiatives and continue to make change happen— to continue as the neational leader in 
allied health higher education. All these things will enhance the academic and clinical excellence 
of our students. We are so proud of our smdents, as these persons will provide positive leader- 
ship in their chosen profession in the future. 

Soon many of you will be joining the ranks of our distinguished alumni. I hope you will 
remember your VCU years fondly, and maintain an active relationship with us. On behalf of the 
faculty and staff of the School of Allied Health Professions, congramlations and sincere best 
wishes for your future.

The VCU School of Dentistry Class of 2002 is about to enter the dental profession to serve the 
people of Virginia and beyond. I trust you agree that you are well prepared to face the many 
opportunities and challenges your new careers will bring. We have an outstanding faculty and 
support staff that collectively comprise the best that dental education has to offer. 1 am confident 
they have provided you the breadth, depth, and quality of instruction and learning experiences that 
you need to enter the postdoctoral education program of your choice or directly into the practice 
of general dentistry or dental hygiene. For your part, you have demonstrated the capability and 
dedication needed to succeed in our profession. 

While the nation and the Commonwealth face serious economic uncertainty, you are entering a 
profession that has remained strong for its members as well as the public. The School of Den- 
tistry strives to sustain its strengths and yet improve where it can. We would like to keep you 
informed about new developments at the School, so as you pursue your professional careers. I 
would ask that you not lose touch with VCU or the School of Dentistry.

1969 - 2001 


How do I be^in to describe a friendship that was only six vears in its infanc)', yet had an impact on me Hke it were sixt)'? 
How do I begin to thank a woman who touched m\ hfc in a way onh' she could? How do I say good-bye, \\ hen just \esterday %\as our 
first hello? 

Sig, it seems like yesterday that we were in that freshman biolog)' lecture hall v\here «e first met. This encounter would 
lead to many study sessions, where I really got to kno\y the person you really were. You were a woman « ith goals and aspirations, 
longing for a life you had put off for so long. You were a woman with compassion and empathy, yet empathy you would not receiye. 

As the years passed, you began to share with me a life which few knew you had, yet pity you would not accept. Instead of 
dwelling on your own hardships, you focused your energy on making others happy, perhaps, because your happiness was far beyond 
your reach. 

This past July you were a part of the happiest day of my Ufe. You and Erika shared a w^eekend with Laiu-a and I in Boston, as 
we celebrated our marriage. I was reminded how much you loyed our music, when the same music was played during your memo- 
rial. During those three short days, I was able to see what a wonderful mother you were. Erika, only a mere 10 years old, had e^ery 
bit of class and elegance that you portrayed. Her intelhgence was well beyond her years. She wanted to accompany you on the trip, 
because she wanted to \asit Haryard, a Uniyersity she was destined to attend. I hope when I am blessed with the gift of children, that I 
am able to raise them as %vonderfully as you did your own. 

Perhaps the most yiyid memories of our friendship were during the last vyeek of your life. You showed me more courage 
and strength during the last four days of your life than anyone has eyer shown me. As in years past, you shared with me your troubled 
life, still looking for no sjinpathy. Hovyeyer, on Thursday, the day before you passed aw-ay, I could tell there \yas something more you 
wanted to say to me, something you failed to say in the days prior. In your own way, you were sa\ing, "good-bye." You didn't want 
me to worry, but you w-anted me to know that it would be our last words to each other. I realized this as I heard of a house fire on m)' 
way to school on Friday. There were three casualties. I needed no address. 1 needed no names. I knew by your "good-bye" the day 

In yoiu- life I am not sure you knew what a wonderful person you were. I want you to know what an impact you had on my 
hfe and the liyes of all \yho met you. I hope you are now truly happy with your two children by your side. I hope someday to meet 
you again. Until then, I will striye to haye an impact on others that only you could ha\e had on mc. Until then, my friend, thank you. 
Until then . . . "good-bye . "

School of Medicine 






By anyone's reckoning, graduating from Medical School is one of life's major events. For 
many, the significance relates to accomplishing a goal, the end of a long struggle, becoming a 
physician. All of this is true but consider also, you have passed through the eye of a needle, 
through the looking glass, passed the last entry point into a long career of health care service. As 
your long academic struggle comes to an end, your life-long, on-the-job learning just begins. 
You are entering a remarkable century of unprecedented biomedical promise. Congratulations on 
gaining access to a fantastic life-long voyage. 

To the School of Medicine, Class of 2002, I say, "go out and get it," or to borrow a slogan, "Just 
do it. " All the best to you in your careers.

The following was written by a medical student in honor of those who so nobly donated their bodies in 
the name of science. These cadavers proved invaluable in the learning of anatomy. We medical 
students could never have discovered the complexities of the human body without them. For this gift, 
we thank you. 

Untitled tt3 

You were a poor historian. 

You never said a word about what was wrong, but I knew. . . 

I knew something was wrong. 

My other patients would say, "Hey doc, I have this throbbing pain in my shoulder." 

But you never complained. 

That scar on your abdomen meant something, but you wanted me to figure it out. 

You would never say a word. 

But you also never told me about your children, 

about how they used to play under the big maple tree 

that sat in the front yard of your house. 

You never mentioned that your husband used to whisper, "I love you," 

before you fell asleep every night. 

Or that when you were twelve years old, 

how you scored the winning run in that kickball game. 

You never told me how sad you were the day you found out your father passed away. 

Or about how much he enjoyed your chocolate chip cookies. 

You never told me about how seeing your grandchildren brought you so much happiness, 

that you forgot about all your pains. 

I saw you everyday 

and I did not know these things about you. 

Perhaps I just did not know enough to ask. 

Or maybe I was so engrossed in the learning of medicine, 

that I forgot to ask. 

But you never complained. 

In fact, I think that at night, 

when no one was looking, you were even smiling. 

You were smiling because you knew that with the passing of every day, 

you were changing my life. 

For you see, although I do not get to visit you as often now as I once did, 

I still see you everyday. 

You are in every patient that visits me. 

When that man complains about the leg pain, it is your muscles that I see, 

your tendons and blood vessels that I picture. 

For that, all the patients that I will see in my entire lifetime thank you. 

For that, I too, would like to thank you. 

You were a poor historian, but you made a great teacher.
